Speculation of a possible reconciliation between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson has been swirling since the news broke that she cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders – and PEOPLE has learned that the couple did recently reunite.
Stewart, 22, and Pattinson, 26, met up in Los Angeles over the weekend of Sept. 15, PEOPLE reports in its upcoming issue.
And, according to an insider, the Twilight hunk’s pals “think they’ll be a couple again.”
While Pattinson was completely heartbroken over the split, says another source, moving on is “easier said than done … and clearly harder than expected.”
